Motherboard issues...please HELP!

Recommended Posts

Why does a motherboard have to use more than one power plug?  It pisses me off...I bought a motherboard from a fellow board member, I didnt specify what the case was like so I got the motherboard from him, when it gets to my house, it doesnt work because the power supply is missin a plug....the one not circled in the pic, which is what Im guessin  x 6-Pin AUX (Xeon) Power plug or somethin(tell me if Im wrong)...Im not blaming him so dont think I am, Its all my fault, so then I talk to my cousin who all this is for, not me, and then he says to just get a whole new case, so I picked one, asked around, got told that it would work because most new PSUs have that plug, so I order it got here today, I open it up...and what do I see....no freakin plug.....I called TigerDirect and they gave me an RMA...it sucks because this is the case my cousin wanted....the case is this one:

Can I get some help please...I would like to not have to send the PSU back and get a new PSU, but I, and he are both broke.....So  the help I need really is, for someone to help me pick out a case that <i>will</i> work...please...thanks..

What is the make and model of the motherboard? 

Did you check with TigherDirect to see if they would replace just the power supply with one that is compatible with your motherboard?  They should be able to look up the MoBo and see which is compatible.

I have been looking around for a case with the PSU you need and most don't say what connectors they have.

I would check out these cases w/o PSU , they even have one for free after rebate.

Any of the above PSU's should work with your MB if there are no other problems with it.

Hope this helps.

Never dealt with TigerDirect but from what I've heard, they are pretty reasonable.  Someone else may better answer this, though.

Good luck!
